Bye-Bye, Pretty Toes

I just love summer toes.  Bright and fun, they seem to epitomize the carefree feeling of pool and beach and vacation.

I really miss them once it starts to get cold.

Because once it gets cold they disappear, not to be seen again until well into the spring.

As much as I love summer toes, I hate cold feet even more.  And so they must be covered.

Not even in cute socks, which would make it more bearable.

But cute socks are not nearly warm enough.  It must be serious socks.  Socks that are thicker and cover the ankle too.

And usually, if the truth is to be told, those socks are covered too.  By nice warm slippers.

As you can tell, in the winter style pretty much goes out the window too.  It’s all about warm.

Can I just tell you how glad I am that at least there’s a warm and stylish option for church???

(No, they’re not comfortable enough to wear around the house.  Plus they don’t really go with my sweats.)


So, until next summer, goodbye pretty toes.  Stay warm!


  1. Bob is always teasing me about wearing socks to bed. I reply that I would wear gloves and a hat too if I thought I could get away with it.

    As for slippers - the bigger, the better. I go through a pair a year. This year they look more like in the house boots, but man-oh-man are they warm!

  2. I was thinking something similar today when I noticed that my toe nails were long enough for a cute pedicure, but that no one would see them anyway. Oh well.

  3. I am the same way! {Except, I don't know if I ever really have cute summer toes.} But I pretty much LIVE in slippers when I'm at home. My grandpa always had cold feet, and I'm pretty sure he passed that gene down to me! =)
